“It Shall Be Unto Them”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet

Many of Christ’s disciples left him after his bread-of-life sermon, leading him to ask of the Twelve, ’Will ye also go away? It was Peter, as their spokesman, who responded, ’Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life. And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.’ (see John 6:66-69.)

We feel to respond in the same manner to the many who would torch the kingdom with the fire of their wrath today and would turn us out of the true fold—’To whom shall we go?’ What do they offer us in exchange for priesthood, keys, and scaling power, for a God who speaks, prophets who live, and the promise of everlasting life?“ (Sustaining and Defending the Faith, p. x.)”
